Before I tie a bunch of saltwater stuff, I just want to confirm the B10s is a saltwater hook?

Yes, I usually it in the salt a lot. It is strong enough to take some big fish and won't rust right away if you rinse it after use.

Just beware that it is very bendy and thin wired. I had a peacock bass open up a #2 the other day, and he was only around 3lbs. 

 

I think you're going to Louisiana right? May want to use something stronger like a mustad or if you like gamakatsu then Sl12s 


Still hunting for my first tarpon on fly! 


Why are windknots in love with me?


Can't wait for that diy trip to Acklins!!

The unique u series has a saltwater hook very similar to a b10s much better price as well.
